Whether you're a parent, teacher, or caregiver, we all have days where our limits get tested and our "buttons" feel more easily pushed.
While these challenges and feelings may be unavoidable at times, the ways in which you choose to manage and model your responses while under the influence of powerful emotions...well, that IS within your control. So the question is:
Do you allow those feelings to hijack your ability to make rational decisions and eventually make things worse?
Do you take an active role in managing those difficult emotions (as best you can) in order to model appropriate behaviors and nurture an environment for success for your children?
